Internship Inquiries


Hey everyone, it's Kaitlin.

The internship at PostSecret is one that's not only a lot of fun, but also full of responsibility. Each summer, interns make sure that every secret is handled properly and stored safely, and we take care to ensure that not a single postcard is lost.

We almost have a full team of interns this summer, but we're looking for one more motivated, hard-working PostSecret enthusiast. The unpaid internship takes a lot of effort and if you meet the requirements below and feel that you would be right for the job, please send your resumes to postsecretintern@gmail.com (anything emailed to this address goes to the interns at PostSecret).

Requirements:
-Must live within commuting distance of Germantown, MD.
-Must own a car.
-Must be able to start immediately.
-Must be able to keep the location of the PostSecret Lair confidential! :)

Thanks y'all!

As a fan of PS since the beginning, an active PSCer and a woman who met her best friend / love through this project, I wish I were close enough to help. To whomever is lucky enough to be chosen, cherish this opportunity.

Oh, if only I were close enough. Western Kentucky is within driving distance, right?! (I can hope.)

I would love to! What are the hours?

If only I weren't 7 hours and 14 minutes away. PostSecret has become such a big part of my life, and Frank inspires me in every way. For those of you that get this amazing chance, cherish it! You're very lucky.

I do! I do! Now what?

I have such admiration for Frank, the post secret team and all those beautiful brave and amazing people who send in their secrets. There have been times in my life where I needed the inspiration to go on and post secret has helped me through so much without ever knowing a thing. If I were not living in Australia, I would be applying for this position, because I could think of nothing better than helping out the people who have helped me. Good luck to the wonderful person who gets the position.

I live in Delaware, own a car, am able to start immediately and able to commute when needed. I am a twenty year old secret keeper who has been a follower of postsecret for years. I had the pleasure of meeting him at an event in my town and I would love to be considered for this awesome opportunity. I can be reached at yellowbirdd@hotmail.com

I hope to be considered.
Be well,
Ashley Lewis

I live in Washington (State) and for a brief second I actually considered MOVING to Maryland just to have a chance at being a part of something so special.

Alas, I cannot. I have a one year old son, a fiance I'm marrying this September and we're about to close on our first home and it's been a horribly stressful few months trying to buy this house and plan a wedding.

I can't leave all this... But, if it were just me I had to uproot to do it, I would be there in a second. ...sigh... I suppose I can just be content with my Sundays.

I'm on the west Coast, but what an honor that would be!!!

As many that already commented, I wish I was closer! Post Secret is such a great idea/project that I would love to work for! Congrats to the new interns and thanks for the hard work! =)

I would LOVE to be apart of this. I think its such an exhilarating thing to be able to tell someone (even if you dont know them) your secret. I have a car. I live in PA, and I would start, right now! you can e-mail me at kflip792@aol.com :) PS. My names Kaitlin too. But you can call me Kait :)

I don't know where to send this comment, but today's post about the mother smothering her baby is the most disturbing thing I have ever read.
It's more than a secret; it's murder.

You are so big in the UK- if only I could intern over here!

Sissy said...

Has the position been filled? I am a 52 year old avid PSer. 52, you say? I would love an opportunity to do something I would be great at, and could make a positive contribution to, and for my age not to be a factor. Fun, creative, connector and I am so young at heart!

I am a 20-year-old University of Maryland journalism student seeking an internship with the Post Secret crew. I have followed and been in love with Post Secret for years now -- I even started a blog a couple of years ago at UMD modeling Post Secret (http://terpsecret.wordpress.com) to give students in the community a place to speak their mind. I love every second of working with the blog, and I would really like to expand this experience by working with the "real deal." I live in College Park, Md., which is very close to Germantown, and I have a vehicle to transport myself to and from. Please let me know if there are any positions available.

Thank you so much for your time,
Sarah Tincher
